Police Questioning Van Ramming Suspect Who Killed 10 Pedestrians in Toronto

Alwaght- Police are questioning the perpetrator of a van-ramming who killed 10 and injured 15 pedestrians in Canada's Toronto on Monday.

Police identified the assailant as Alek Minassian, saying the 25-year-old man was not previously known to them.

Police were pictured at Minassian's home in the northern Toronto suburb of Richmond Hill. Minassian was not believed to be associated with any organized militant group.

Police said the white rental van mounted the kerb on Yonge Street between Finch Avenue and Sheppard Avenue at about 13:30 local time (17:30 GMT) on Monday and drove into pedestrians along a 2km (1.24 mile) stretch.

Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital said five of the injured are in a critical condition and another two are in a serious condition. The hospital said on Twitter that its emergency department is on lockdown as an “added precaution.”

Meanwhile, an officer has been praised for not opening fire during a tense standoff with the suspect, who claimed to be armed.

Video broadcast on CBC News showed a man pointing what appeared to be a gun at officers and shouting "kill me".

The officer tells the man to "get down" and when the suspect says he has a gun, the officer repeats: "I don't care. Get down." The suspect was then arrested without shots being fired.
